Well, this has been interesting!

We seem finally to not only have a computer, but also a functioning internet connection. This has been an extremely interesting experience, recovering from a major hard drive crash. I do believe that we will be performing a back-up of the important data in a far more regular manner henceforth. Well, performing a back-up, never mind the manner.

In the last couple of weeks, a lot has happened. The daughter survived the exams and end of year activities. Officially, Grade 10 is over.

The daughter attended the Grade 12 Prom with Dave, a young man she has come to know by way of the Rebel Improv team. The dress was borrowed from a friend, and I knit up a shawl to accompany it. The shawl was knit from SeaSilk, 150 grams, purchased at the Knitter's Frolic. She loved it, and it loved her.
She has now gone to visit her dad over in Michigan for a couple of weeks. I sure hope she is having fun.

In other news, we have discovered that the Lizzie-kitty has good taste. Here, she is enjoying a ball of Paton's Classic Merino.
But she suspects that we are holding out on her. Somewhere there is a better ball of wool for her to snuggle.

She would be correct. We were holding back the Luxury Alpaca Peru.

Nice to see that I'm raising more than one yarn snob!

I'm glad to see you're over your computer troubles. Lovely shawl! Lovely daughter! Don't they grow up fast - my 12 year old DS is now my height.

Beautiful shawl (and daughter!). Such a cute shot of kitty.

Shawl is almost as beautiful as the daughter. I loved teaching teenagers - such interesting young people. Hope all of you enjoy your summer!
